Gun Control Supporters Race to Embarrass Themselves Following OSU Stabbing Attack

by NRAILA.org  |  Published on December 7, 2016

Guinness World Records may refuse to acknowledge feats pertaining to the lawful exercise of right to keep and bear arms, but how about a world record for most shameless attempt to politicize tragedy? The competition would be stiff, as evidenced by the plethora of ignorant tweets issued in the wake of Monday’s motor vehicle and stabbing attack on the campus of Ohio State University.

Just before 10 a.m. Monday, Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove a car into a crowd of people near Watts Hall on the OSU campus. Those in the crowd had reportedly evacuated the building following reports of a gas leak. After plowing into the group with the car, Artan left the vehicle and began attacking the crowd with a butcher knife. Reports indicate that Ohio State Police Officer Alan Horujko arrived on the scene of the attack in less than a minute and shot and killed Artan. 11 individuals sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the attack.

A subsequent investigation into Artan revealed that he had posted comments sympathetic of lone wolf terrorist attacks to Facebook. The day after the attack, ISIS praised Artan as their “soldier.”

At the outset of the incident, university officials issued an alert warning of an active shooter situation on campus, urging students and faculty to “Run Hide Fight.” This information was then spread by various news outlets.

Rather than pausing to reflect on this tragic initial report or waiting for a full account of the facts, prominent gun control supporters rushed to their keyboards and pulled out their phones in a race to tweet their ill-considered reactions to the “shooting.”
